Mixed Affections

John Fowler, Amazon
10 December 2007
  • Summary: We got this printer to cut down on the expense we were incurring with inkjet printers. By making it the default, and only switching to the inkjet when we NEEDED color, we have saved a fortune already.

basic

Eli A, pcRUSH.com

  • Summary: Comments about Brother HL-2040: This printer is fine for printing text on regular 20 lb paper, but don't expect too much more than that. If you need to print labels or envelopes,each one has to be hand fed into the manual feeder, which is flimsy and doesn't always guide the paper in straight.
  • Pros: Efficient, Fast
  • Cons: Noisy

Quality prints but pages curl

Cleveland guy, Amazon
16 October 2006
  • Summary: The print quality is really nice (I have only used it to print text), but the pages curl no matter how thick or thin the paper. I've used cheap copy paper and expensive 30-pound resume paper, all with equal curling.

A lot faster than the HL-1440

  • Summary: I just upgraded from an HL-1440 which died a sudden death last night -- the sheet feeder broke. This one is a little noiser, seems a little flimsier, but boy is it a lot faster. For a $110 -- if I get one year out of it, I figure I'll be money ahead.

Works well for the price--but it is NOT a hi-speed USB 2.0 printer (and it's noisy)

Tim Idsole, Amazon
9 October 2005
  • Summary: The printer is a good value, and has worked without problem for the two weeks I've had it. It is much noisier during printing than the other desktop laser printers I've owned--sounds a bit like a jet aircraft revving up.

Mac Friendly

Mott "Sarah Mott", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this to use with my new iBook. The compact size nicely reflects the compact size of my portable iBook. Conectivity is great via USB and it found the printer right away. No complaints here, and I print daily on this machine. Good machine for the price.
